Dear Editor,

We would like to thank all who helped with our annual Live Nativity presentation last week. We appreciate those who took time to stop to see the Nativity, up close and personal. while enjoying the Christmas goodies provided by the congregation.

We especially want to thank Ted and Linda Johnson from TEDDY’S BEARS PUZZLES for providing the wonderful tent for the refreshments. We were all blessed to be in out of the cold wind while enjoying the food and fellowship.

Merry Christmas to all and may you enjoy a very Blessed New Year as well.

Winter came a week early as snow covered mountains above Lucerne Valley in mid-December. The storm brought cold temperatures and rain in town. More than an inch of rain fell, bringing much-appreciated water to a dry region. Above are the snowy peaks as seen from Old Woman Springs Road near Highway 18. Photo: Peter Day / The Leader
